    Pros

    Great hospital, the teamwork between physicians and nurses and support staff is excellent.

    Cons

    Shared rooms, rather than private are tough when you need to have difficult conversations with patients and there is someone else on the other side of the curtain.

    I have been working at Washington Hospital Healthcare System part-time

    Pros

    The team work at this hospital is unlike anything I've ever seen. The doctors are very personable to their nursing staff. The CNAs are amazing--definitely the hardest working CNAs I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Scheduling is tough. 8 hours of work and the CNAs are not allowed to chart anything. Nursing has to fulfill the work of CNAs and RNs including intake and output, charting, vital signs in 8 hours. It's extremely hard to adjust to... but it's doable.
